The Magnesium Remedy

Recommended Posts

drinkersofthewind

My cold sores were cured in childhood by my family's remedy of supplementing magnesium. A M.A.S.H. nurse who served in Viet Nam was a friend who had extreme herpes and could not have contact with sunlight as it would ignite her condition. She tried the family remedy and had the first suntan of her life since contracting the disease. She supplemented a couple of magnesium pills with every meal (I just use milk of magnesia), plus took pro-biotics and vitamin C with bioflavanoids to help mineral absorption. The theory is the herpes virus can thrive in a body deficient of magnesium. Increase the magnesium level and the virus is stifled. I have turned many friends on to this simple remedy and they have had cessation of symptoms.

I would love to try magnesium but it gives me horrible diarrhea and nausea even when I take it on a full stomach. Drinkersofthewinds, are you experiencing any weird side effects as well?

I have never had any negative effects from it. Two milk of magnesia pills is a mild dose and works as an antacid, not as a laxative, so most people wouldn't be negatively affected. But, health food stores sell magnesium supplements in more palatable forms than milk of magnesia.

I take acyclovir everyday, 3 times a day when I get a breakout, and it still doesn't stop the breakouts, I was getting breakouts about every month, the blisters were smaller and healed faster, but I still got them. THEN!!! I heard about magnesium, I do both, and I rarely have a breakout, maybe once a year, and super tiny, usually only when I have the flu or something. Not quite a cure but it sure feels like it.

Hey drinkersofthewind, your oral h1 may have been suppressed and has gone dormant, but certainty NOT CURED.. There is no cure! I stayed dormant for 23 years of my genital h2, but last year had a stress induced second outbreak. Don't lead users to believe they can be cured. This isn't possible, yet anyway. I have had ghsv2 for 25 years, believe me, there is no cure. Truly, Ace

I made no such assertion. Read the posts carefully.

Please reread your first sentence..

apology

Please reread your first sentence..

I did use the word "cure" and I mispoke and I apologize. I know the virus still exists and is dormant. My point is I and many I know have supplemented magnesium and our symptoms went away. The hypothesis is herpes virus can thrive in a magnesium depleted host.

      That’s right, most infections of the one type are in one nerve ganglion. As such, the virus only appears at the skin’s surface where that ganglion reaches to.  This does all come down to the numbers though, if you have no other evidence than a firmly positive HSV infection, the default assumption which is not likely to be wrong is that type 1 is oral and type 2 is genital. A positive swab is the only evidence to the contrary.

      I was having back to back OB's and decided to try several things I had read about here.  The first one was instant gratification:  oil of oregano diluted with fractionated coconut oil.  I could feel another OB coming, tingles, and just spread the oil all over the area.  In a few minutes the tingle was gone.  The lesions and red scarring i had responded well to it too.  Went away promptly.  The second thing was diet.  A person on this forum said they had good results by eating more vegetables, some fruit, meat and mostly using potatoes for carbs.  Like, leaving grains alone.  I decided to leave wheat alone and use other grains occasionally.  I no longer eat chocolate, nuts, seeds, coconut, oats, as these r all potential triggers for an OB.  I take 1000 mg lysine 2 x day in case i unknowingly eat some food that is high in arganine.  So far so good.  Another person on this forum said she took neem capsules 2 x day and hadnt had another outbreak in 2 years.  So i do that too.  It hasnt been long enough for me to make any great claims, but the continuous, never ending breakouts have stopped, i have energy and feel good.

      Is it possible to catch HSV 2 somewhere else other than the penis... And if so does this mean you will not transmit from that area?

      I wouldnt want to give anyone info that they might decide to use against me at some point.  U must tell those that u must tell, but otherwise, i would only unburden myself anonymously, like on a forum.  No judgment or harm here.

      Could you recommend any decent treatment if you know of any?
